The nylon Niemoller webbing was first produced in 1981 (source: http://iacmc.forumotion.com/t10324-niemoller-webbing-variant-background-history#7527), with this particular harness being the first Niemoller product, by a private company operated by Johann Niemoller, a former Recce commando. The Niemoller line of webbing was intended to be sterile for external operations, with no components that can be traced back to South Africa, and was likely intended to be destroyed after use. Nearly all Niemoller webbing items were made from a 420D nylon packcloth material similar to the ones used in US ALICE packs. Webbing made from similar material derived from the original designs are still used today by the modern SANDF Recces.
